MATHEW de Kock has saddled 13 winners in the month of March 2017, including two trebles and a four-timer – with a Listed, Gr2 and Gr3 win included in the tally.
Diane de Kock summed it up well on Facebook, Thursday evening: She wrote: “We had 4 winners today! I want to say congratulations to my son Mathew and he couldn’t have done this without the support of our hard working team Clayton Matthee, Vengi Masawi, David Dlamini and and our loyal grooms.
“Under Michael’s guidance Mathew has risen to amazing heights. He has huge amounts of pressure in running such a big stable yet he has handled it all and excelled. I am very proud of you Mathew and our great team. Well done!”
We can’t really say it better.
Below are the four Thursday winners, clockwise from top left Tharoos (Callan Murray), Alileo (Murray), B Twenty One (Anthony Delpech) and Nikki (Delpech).
